Being out in the boonies, not too worried about neighbor kids climbing up and falling into an above ground pool we're goign to put in. BUT for insurance purposes (ok, and just in case for small kiddos), I'm considering a pool fence.

GOing to home depot or calling a fence place, looking at $8/ft. Waaaay too much. Fence has to be "non climbable." Other than 1/2" or 5/8" square tubing, any ideas out there about what materials to use? I considered winding lots of barbed wire around... :-)

Just had a bad thing here in Florida, one county over from me, Kids, 3 brothers went over a 8 foot wood fence and drowned in a neighbors pool. You would think a 8 foot wood fence would be enough!

You might want to also check with your building permit people. Here in Wayne County IN they are requiring minimum 6 ft height fence with a lockable gate. I put in our pool before the permits and inspections were required, but they've changed the zoning ordinance in the past couple years.

Build it yourelf. Chain link is around 1.50 a ft 6-ft high and you can use wood posts and save some money. Mark H.
